KOSIK is the project of Matt Borghi and Michael Kirson-Goldapper. Raised on the periphery of Detroit, the two life-long friends were exposed to all kinds of music, much of which has been rolled up into their KOSIK project. While the KOSIK project is relatively new, Michael and Matt have been working together for the better part of a decade on a variety of projects, musical and otherwise. KOSIK is the first collaborative project that Michael and Matt have allowed to see the light of day. KOSIK also marks a turning point in their compositional and collaborative approach.
The KOSIK sound is the experimental culmination and fusion of all the diverse elements that influenced and inspired the duo as they were growing up. While much of their music is based around treated guitars and electronics, the compositions are firmly rooted in the singer-songwriter movement of the mid-1970s. Ironically, much of the KOSIK sound has been instrumental, and without vocals, but future recordings will see a transition to more vocally fused work.
With the KOSIK project, Matt and Michael combine their love for musical experimentation with their passion for cohesive, well-structured recordings. Because of their guitar-centric, melodic melancholia, and their tight, unlooped micro-rhythms KOSIK has been compared to Radiohead, Aphex Twin, and Sigur Ros. Ultimately, though, KOSIK is a project driven by experimentation, and Michael and Matt are willing to go wherever their inspiration takes them.
